. >> the war against chuck hagel, let's play "hardball." >> good evening, wlet me start tonight with this, at least for now, defense secretary. republicans have thrown out so many different reasons. it's hard to keep them all straight. it's because hagel hasn't accounted for every single penny he's made and it's because of what he had to say about israel and iran. but it's also because of the white house's response to benghazi, something that has nothing do with chuck hagel, who wasn't even in the government at the time. today, the unprecedented step came to a head. that failed to get the 60 votes needed. that mob at the gate headed over >> what are republicans really trying to do? nbc's kelly o'donnell is at the capital tonight. let me just tell you this, i'm going to ask you, why are they doing this? why are they holding up a cabinet appointment? >> for some of them, it is about chuck hagel wanting to know more, who were not a part of committee. they just all received. they make it very clear. it's not personal, they say. it is a tool within the rules of the senate. they say the only to
, and remember, the spin stops here, we're definitely looking out. this is a fox news alert. chuck hagel has been stopped by the republicans and we have that upcoming report tonight. and first the passengers on board the disabled carnival triumph cruise ship are making approach and could make landfall this hour. the cruise ship went dark on sunday after a fire broke out in the engine room leaving 4,000 passengers on board stranded and without any power. now, the conditions on the ship have been haroing to say the least with the passengers reporting toilets are overflowing and food is scarce and sewage is everywhere. and joining us jonathan serrie, jonathan. >> reporter: sean, the excitement is building among the family and friends gathered here waiting for this ship to come in. latest estimates coming in between 9:30 and half past midnight central time. a lot of wild cards because this is a ship that's running on limited power. we understand that the winchs aren't working and the docking is going to take time and disemba disembarkation. one functioning elevator and most the passengers are going
. today we saw officially just an unprecedented filibuster of defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. is this the worst you've ever seen in congress? >> well, you know, we always say it's the worst. the republicans are just having a hard time. they got their bell rung, and they're trying to fight against hagel, who is actually a republican. mccain seems to be trying to figure a way to get out of this. this thing with rubio last night was just a first-class mess on their part. karl and the tea party are fighting with each other. you know, it's going to take them a little while to figure out where they're going. but right now they're just all confused and don't quite know what way to go. and all they can do is say just the same thing. if you look at rubio, it's the same speech you've heard for the last 30 years. it's nothing there. >> americans get -- i think are upset about this. that's not the term i'd like to use on tv. i'd be a little more brash abou. across the country. number one, they're going on vacation for a couple weeks when we've got this thing looming on march 1st, the seq
carthyism and this weird unconnectedness attacking chuck hagel, for example, because no one will give us info or anyone info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks the worse these characters inhofe, cruz, mccain and lindsey graham are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had so say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chafer of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them? "the new york times" reports
that with chuck hagel. 84% of americans for conservative action, voting record in his canner radio, voting for the bush tax cuts, voted for the war in iraq, voted against no child left behind but was a small government conservative, and republicans right now, particularly tea party, are not looking for converts like the democrats were with joe leiberman. they're looking for heretics. and they see in chuck hagel who never endorsed barack obama, was friendly with him, traveled with him, but didn't endorse him. they see this terrible heretic. and it's really, that is where the republicans are right now. they are looking for heretics instead of converts. and i think it's apparent in the tea party. but i think it's apparent in the ranks of the entire ranks of the party. >> you have effectively turned the corner to the next thing i wanted to ask you about, and this is the hagel confirmation. the republicans, i gather, we're told t is unprecedented, blocking the nomination or the confirmation so far of the man president obama wants to be his defense secretary. >> it's not quite unprecedented for
senator chuck hagel as our next secretary of defense. and brennaman as the head of the c.i.a. in a new t.v. add for the n.r.a., a gun owner is a proclaimed proud defender of the second amendment. >> after the nra's disgusting response, i've had enough. you take money from the n.r.a. and then continue to do their bidding, we're going to remember that come election time. >> move on is running a separate add targeting senator rob portman of ohio. the senator said he could get behind some gun safety legislative proposals but hasn't made a public commitment to any of them yet. we're back. stay with us. billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com [ male announcer ] start with a groundbreaking car. good. then invent an entirely new way to buy one. no. no. no. yes! a website that works like a wedding registry. but for a car. first, you customize it. then let people sponsor the car's parts as gifts. dad sponsors the engine for your birthday. grandma sponsors the rims for graduation. the car gets funded. then y
stuff up. mcfarland warns time not on chuck hagel's side. good to see you, explain. >> he has two weeks where he's going to twist in the wind and his opponents will find out every dumb thing he's ever said. every speech he's ever made. they'll find out how many overdo library books he had. they'll try to paint the picture of a unqualified man to be secretary of defense. >> i think when there's something like this and it drags on, whether it ultimately passes, and john mccain was here saying he thinks we would be approved. he wouldn't vote for him but he would be approved. the upshot being that what happens is most nominees withdraw. they say it's not worth it and to save further embarssment they go quietly into the night, would he? >> one of two things, either he'll withdraw -- maybe the white house says this is also a distraction from the president's mission. we think it's a good idea if you withdraw. if he does, there are two candidates behind him. number two at the defense department, ash carter and michelle flowknow. both very well respected. say he does get confirmed. he's a weak s
